The singer brings back a print that was so popular a year ago – chevron – and wears it via a Rubin Singer one-shoulder dress, accessorized with unexpectedly understated hair, Jacob & Co. jewelry and Henri Lepore Dezert T-strap pumps at the Samsung Hope for Children Gala in N.Y.C.

On Dec. 5, 2013, Carrie Underwood stepped into the iconic role made famous by Julie Andrews during NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music, playing Maria Von Trapp opposite True Blood's Stephen Moyer as the Captain. The musical took over Twitter, where Underwood's performance was met with less-than-positive reviews, prompting the country crooner to Tweet in response, "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus."

Underwood wrote her 2009 hit "Mama's Song" in honor of her own mom Carole, an Oklahoma elementary school teacher who appears in the song's music video. While the tune tells the story of a woman moving away from home to start her own life, Underwood's mother is never too far away, joining her in Las Vegas at the ACM awards in April.

Most of the equations we learned in high school, we've long forgotten, but here's one we still remember and refer to every December: a sparkly metallic A-line mini + a black top + tights + boots = an instant holiday party outfit. Extra credit for throwing in big bouncy curls.

Another year as host, another slew of over-the-top costume changes. The singer breaks out 10 totally different looks. Two we won't soon forget: her Nikki Rich shorts look, worn with Ryan Haber heels and a jaunty fedora, and the origami-inspired Cengiz Abazoglu mini, accessorized with a Cuffs Couture bracelet, Royal Asscher earrings and the same sparkly heels.

Third time's a charm for Carrie as a co-host. She gets everyone talking with two tutu-inspired dresses: a tulle Talbot Runhof gown to kick off the show and a lemon Georges Chakra number that would likely get the stamp of approval from another famous Carrie (Bradshaw, that is).

The costume changes only get more elaborate as Carrie steps out for her second year running the show. She makes sure she outshines her co-host Brad Paisley in a glittering Theia dress, which later gets exchanged for a Roberto de Villacis sequin shorts ensemble. (And by the way, these are just two of nine looks from that night.)

For her first time as host of the CMAs, the star doesn't have a chance to get nervous – she's way too busy changing outfits backstage. Two of the many looks she debuts include this chartreuse beaded Roberto Cavalli gown on the red carpet and a beaded champagne mini.

The biggest proof that Carrie had officially arrived: She wears more than $7 million worth of Johnathon Arndt jewels over the course of the show, including the diamonds that went with her Badgley Mischka red carpet dress, and the butterfly pins adorning her Escada performance gown.

When it comes to good eats, the American Idol alum adheres to a strict vegan lifestyle, stocking her meals with soy, veggies and tofu, plus plenty of organic desserts (including a made-from-scratch berry cobbler she baked over the summer). While hubby Mike Fisher still prefers steak for dinner, it hasn't stopped the couple from cooking together at home. "It's kind of a team effort, which I really appreciate. I want this to be our thing with our kids someday," she told Oprah Winfrey in 2012.
